This from the city about tomorrow’s event, National Night out:
Join us for this annual event on Tuesday, August 2nd from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park.

The city is hosting a National Night Out event on Tuesday, August 2nd from 5:30 â€“ 8:30 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park. Â â€œAmericaâ€™s Night Out Against Crimeâ€ is an annual event designed to strengthen communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners.
“While it is a lot of fun to watch our emergency responders go head-to-head in this friendly competition, letâ€™s remember that this group of men and women fight to protect us on a daily basis”; said Mayor Senna Mosley. Â “So let’s all come out and celebrate this evening where our neighbors stand side by side with the message that crime will not be tolerated in our community.Â All events are free and please take this as my personal invitation to the public to come out and share your pride in our community.”
Several local businesses and philanthropic organizations are providing free hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza, and sno-cones. Â There will be a watermelon seed spitting contest, bounce houses for children, face painting, and a SWAT team exhibition. Also, residents and visitors can tour the HazMat Trailer, the Box 100 Rescue Trailer, city fire trucks, and meet with members of the Rescue Squad
